Journal 52 -week 12- A day in my life.

Week 12 for Journal 52 and our prompt was  'A day in my Life'.
Now to say  that my day has a routine, and at  the end of it I wonder what I actually did, would be understated. I can never keep to a plan, a pure waste of time and effort.
Briefly most days like today  begin with the birds tweeting in the nearby trees and waking me up.
Next a huge mug of tea,  definitely a must  to start the day.
Meg needs her morning walk, so off to the woodland paths. just round the corner from my house.
Home and a quick look to see what chores have to be done that day, I can easily talk myself out of the 'H' word. Before lunch, the craft room won as usual.
A visit to a friends for the afternoon, coffee, cake, chatter, laughter and put the world to rights.
Back home to the aroma of Curry, my lovely husband has been making the evening meal.
All it needs, is for me to lay the table,  then eat it.
A companionable evening, read a few chapters of my latest book and another day has drawn to its close.
So if you have read this far, it will have explained the reason for the page and the mixture of images I added.
I have come to the conclusion over these past weeks, that journals can be anything or everything you want them to be, sometimes neat, or untidy like I feel this page looks.  It is how you feel at the time you put ink, paint, and whatever else you want to add, on the page.
I wonder how your day went, hope it was as good as mine.
